making a baral deck:

The win con is to cast polymorph and untap with jin gitaxias or start beating down with kozilek. The goal is to counter spells to survive and dig tawrd my polymorph effect, then protect it and myself while swinging for the win or drawing 7 a turn. I will mostly use it when people want to 1v1 me but i will use it in multiplayer sometimes, and im fine with swapping out cards depending on the number of opponents. As you can see there are 11 too many cards, and im wondering what the expert edh draw go enthusiests think I should cut in order to get down to 100.

Meta: is very creature based and here is a list of the decks I regularly play against at the LGS: Krenko, a mono black discard deck, locust god, combo animar, kaalia, SAI thopters, phenax, ur dragon, rith tokens,sen triplets (will just not play this deck agaisnt it), GW bad humans, slivers, and kambal.

Should I cut some counterspells, if so, which ones?

Hello SMASHER101 I have looked at your decklist and have a couple of suggestions for cuts/swaps:)

First Opt could be cut for Preordain as it's just better all around.

As for counterspells I think the following could go:

Dismiss, Exclude, Essence Scatter, Faerie Trickery, Logic Knot, and Spell Crumple these counterspells are just not very powerful and seeing as you have so many in your deck cutting six would barely hurt your ability to counter masses of spells.

Dragonlord's Prerogative could go as its ability is a bit underwhelming.

Nagging Thoughts and Capsize are also possible cuts.

Hope this helps happy tapping:)

Thanks for the tips, I thought I had preordain in the list already. Also, prerogative and the other 6 mana draw 4s, what would you replace the draw with? I don't want to run out of answers and I've played mono blue in 60 card casual that just countered everything and then cast gush or Kefnet or treasure cruise and countered more spells. Often games were decided on me top decking a timely draw spell, and I feel like I need about this many. Or am I just wrong and it's different with bar all as the leader?
